Taking Angels (The Angel Crusades) - CS Yelle

Every person has a soul with a guardian angel to watch over it. Kind of like a personal bodyguard for your eternal spirit.

As Britt tries to end her life by going into the frigid waters she realizes her mistake. When Allister Parks finds Britt’s fragile body on the riverbank something calls out to him. Allister brings Britt back from the edge of death. Her very existence threatens Allister’s place in this world. Allister struggles to keep Britt a secret from the Eternal Council and out of the hands of the only Eternal who already knows the truth: the one who stole her guardian angel.

Taking Angels is full of mystery, drama, suspense, adventure, great characters like Angelina, Kendall, Bastion, Gabe and Britt's three amigos! The downside of this book is that everyone seems to fall in love with Britt but her heart only beats for one. At times this book reads like my diary when I met a boy and fell head-over-heels in love and was so over-the-top-dramatic - ugh! ... 'Was that why I loved Allister so much? Because he saved me?..."No, well, yes maybe partly. And because he loves me so completely. And I feel something when I'm with him I've never felt before. And I yearn for him when we're apart."

Ugh! I had to keep reminding myself that I used to be just like Britt, (I blush just reading my old diary entries) even though my now, jaded heart hates sappy love scenes.

All in all, this book is an intriguing read. 

"Ok, so you're an Eternal. Good for you. I'm a Scorpio. What is that supposed to mean?"

"Great, not only am I a freak, I'm the freak of the freaks now?"
